Johnny Knoxville comes home for a good cause

Actor and stuntman Johnny Knoxville paid a visit to the downtown Knoxville Regal Riviera theatre on Tuesday night for a private screening of his latest movie, Jackass 3D.

The screening was an auction item from the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tennessee Valley’s Club Blue fundraiser, Sunglasses at Night. The purchaser, Lee Francis of Knoxville, brought his friends downtown for some fun – and for those who know about Johnny Knoxville – a little bit of mischief.

The Boys & Girls Club is near and dear to Johnny’s heart as he participated in one of the Knoxville Club’s sports programs when he was a kid.  Johnny donated the auction item to raise money for the organization.

A big thanks goes out to Johnny for his generosity to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tennessee Valley. The screening was a big success, and as always, it’s always a pleasure when Johnny comes home to Knoxville!

Knoxville News Sentinel’s Terry Morrow caught up with Johnny and you can read about it here.

WBIR-TV’s Erin Donovan also talked with Johnny at the screening. Check out the video here:
